(Above- Megan Ney and Tim Quinn both achieved a perfect 4.0 GPA during the fall semester)

Richmond, Va. – The Atlantic 10 today announced the Commissioner’s Honor Roll for the Fall 2009 semester, honoring each student-athlete in the Atlantic 10 with a 3.5 grade point average or better.

“I congratulate the student-athletes who have been named to the Commissioner’s Honor Roll. Balancing the demands of athletic participation and academic achievement is a difficult task,” says A-10 Commissioner Bernadette V. McGlade.

“Each is a great role model for their institution and the Atlantic 10 Conference.”

Below are the 22 members of the Richmond Cross Country/Track & Field Teams earning a place on the Commissioner’s Honor Roll for the Fall 2009… The Spiders Track & Field teams have the highest number of representatives on the honor roll of the sports programs sponsored at Richmond.

“We’re proud of our student-athletes and the effort they make to excel within the classroom and on the field of competition”, said Head Women’s Coach Lori Taylor. “They understand and embrace the fact that they are here to earn a tremendous education while they compete at the highest level of athletics within the NCAA. It takes hard work in both areas, especially to balance the two. Our men and women do an excellent job of keeping both in perspective.”
